He is There

The heavens can't keep  their secret so  they shout  it to the birds and the birds boast it before the Lillies  and the lilies let the valleys know, and the valleys veer off far and wide to tell the rivers and the river's roar to the man and the man alerts the other  men and women one by  one telling them  all  that  He is there The God of the universe, the King of all creation  in very much  there and He is coming  down  soon!
